Badgers verbal Ball mulls Michigan

By Jared Shanker

Michigan offered three-star athlete and Wisconsin commit Marcus Ball last Sunday.

This Sunday, following an official visit to Ann Arbor, Ball has a lot of thinking to do.

"Commitment status hasn't changed, but liked Michigan a lot," Ball said.

Ball committed to Wisconsin while on an official visit to Madison on Nov. 18, but a lot has changed since then. Bret Bielema left for the coaching vacancy at Arkansas, and several of the assistants have either followed or moved on elsewhere.

Ball's older brother, Ray, is an offensive lineman at Wisconsin, and was a big factor in Ball's commitment to Wisconsin.

There is no decision date for Ball as he considers the Michigan offer.

"I'm not sure," Ball said. "I have to see what's going on with Wisconsin."
